Emachines e525 stuck in recovery maintenance window

I tried to reload the original factory format using f8/alt (due to virus). When it rebooted it went to "emachines recovery maintenance" window and inside the window said "please wait a moment". I went back several hours later and it still had the same message. I then purchased the reformat software from emachines website. I put the system disk software in the dvd drive and rebooted the system, hit f12 on the splash screen and it still gives me the same window and message. Is my hard drive fried or is there something else I can do to correct?

    On an Emachine, that could be anything from the anemic PSU which they shipped with, to a memory problem, including a failing hard drive, and everything in between. I know that doesn't help much, but you could hang the hard drive in another system and check it for errors, then again, you could get a PSU with higher Watts and also do a memory test.
